Jump-cut sequences are frequently used to support typical situations or actions. One of them is what I call the ‘parade’ effect. In the following excerpt, Kimble interviews the children of his classroom one by one to identify the child of a criminal’s ex-wife he has been seeking. This effect is typically used to display series of different characters in the exact same environment, as with job interviews, checkout lanes or police line-ups. Note how the camera remains (relatively) still from one shot to the other to emphasize the shift in characters.
